It is a beautiful style with heavy ornate work and designs that would give your home a taste of French royalty. Try it out with small decors like trays and lamps to start!


6. Gold Metallic 

Gold is such a luxurious metal that is one of the key pillars of a Parisian home, it adds some color and a metallic quality to the place. Get pieces of furniture with gold accents like at the leg or detailing of the sofa, or an accent table lamp with some gold trimming to give that pop of contrast. With french white walls, the aristocrat metal really makes a striking difference when decorating your home.
